Question about flucalc in bilingual samples

hello Chibolts,
I am analyzing some data from bilingual children. The CHAT files have both
English and Spanish words in them. In the Spanish files, the English words
have been tagged with "@s". I have two questions about running flucalc for
Spanish:

1. the MOR words output in the flucalc spreadsheet seems to be counting
both Spanish and English words in the samples, rather than just the Spanish
ones. I thought that tagging the English words in the Spanish files meant
that they would be ignored in Spanish counts, but that does not appear to
have happened (I cross-checked word count with FREQ). Is there a way to
count just the Spanish words for flucalc?

2. In some instances the flucalc output says that words per minute is N/A.
Does this mean that there were not enough utterances to calculate WPM? if
so, what is the necessary number of utterances for this?

Thank you

Shelley
